Clarksville Christian School is a dually accredited institution, having been granted full accreditation status from both AdvancED (formerly SACS–Southern Association of Colleges and Schools), and the Association of Christian Schools International (ACSI).
From the inception of Clarksville Christian School in 2007, the desire has been to strive for excellence. CCS has undergone an intensive and rigorous five-year process to earn this distinction. The benefits of affiliation with organizations such as AdvancED and ACSI hold CCS to a higher standard and degree of accountability. Benefits that are appreciated by students and their parents include greater access to federal loans, scholarships, and post-secondary education and military programs that require students to attend an accredited institution, as well as ease in transferring of credits.
Principal Amanda Binkley states, “The accreditation status given to CCS by both ACSI and AdvancED will give the students who graduate from CCS all the same rights and privileges as students who graduate from any school in Tennessee, public or private. Dual accreditation ensures that students will have access to college preparation (ACT, SAT, Dual Enrollment, etc.) and full recognition of their diplomas by colleges and universities. Accreditation allows us to compete academically with any school, large or small, in the quality education that we can provide to our students.”
Clarksville Christian School is proud to announce Senior Scholarship and ACT results for the class of 2017.
In academic scholarship offerings alone, the class of 2017 was offered almost $900,000 from various colleges and universities. Additionally, other “sister schools” such as Lipscomb University and Harding University, offered in excess of $200,000 in tuition discounts to students attending their universities. These numbers, combined with various other scholarships and grants awarded to the class of 2017, total over 1.1 million dollars.
Much of the academic success of these students is due to their diligence in academics, which has resulted in high ACT scores and grade point averages. The CCS class of 2017 has an average ACT composite score of 23.3, far exceeding the Tennessee average of 19.9 and the national average of 20.8. Even more impressive, half of the students scored at or above a 25 composite on the ACT.
CCS is pleased to share data that is reflective of an increased academic rigor. These results are a testament to the dedication and hard work of our faculty, students, and parents. We are pleased to see the evidences of a faith-based educational environment where our students' academic achievements continue to rival that of their peers nationwide. Our faculty and students have truly demonstrated academic excellence through Christian faith. Please pray that God will continue to bless CCS both spiritually and academically.
